Concealed information can be accurately assessed with physiological measures. To overcome the practical limitations of physiological measures, an assessment using response latencies has been proposed. At first sight, research findings on response latency based concealed information tests seem inconsistent. Our procedural analysis of the various latency-based tests indicates that tests based on a manipulation of relevant stimulus-response compatibility, such as the oddball task (Farwell & Donchin, 1991; Seymour, Seifert, Shafto, & Mosmann, 2000), have typically produced robust results. These results are promising, but need to be extended with research examining vulnerability to faking and performance under more realistic circumstances.
